We appreciate your interest in doing business with the City of Newport Beach. The City is always interested in securing responsible suppliers who can meet its needs promptly, economically and in the desired quality and quantities. It is the aim of the City to open lines of communication between the supplier community and the City and to promote business relationships with the City of Newport Beach.

Purpose
The purpose of the City's Purchasing section is to maintain continuity of services and supplies to support the various City agencies and departments. The Purchasing section also promotes transparency, ethics and efficiency in conducting the City’s procurement efforts.

Supplier Registration – PlanetBids
In order to ensure open interactions with potential suppliers and to conduct a fair, transparent and competitive procurement process the City of Newport Beach is facilitating an online supplier registration system through PlanetBids.

By registering as a supplier to the City on the PlanetBids system, potential suppliers will be automatically notified via e-mail of the City’s Request for Estimate (RFE), Request for Bid (RFB), Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitations. While these solicitations have always been posted on the City’s website, the PlanetBids system will enable suppliers to be more connected to these opportunities as they arise. This proactive approach will eliminate the obligation of suppliers to constantly check the City’s website for bid or proposal opportunities. The PlanetBids system can also be used to view bid and proposal award results and history.

Registration with PlanetBids is free of charge and there is never any charge to be notified of bid and proposal opportunities from the City of Newport Beach or to view award history. To register as a supplier with the City through PlanetBids, please click here.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Purchasing section via telephone at 949-644-3080 or via e-mail at purchasing@newportbeachca.gov.
